Dining on Railay Beach can be a challenge when there are so many Railay Beach Restaurants to choose from. There are the simple beachside long tail boats which have been retro fitted to become full service restaurants. There are also 5 star extravagant restaurants to choose form, and everything in between. We have tried to simplify that list to make your holiday in Railay Beach all the better.

From Railay Beach West to Railay beach East there are is a completely different feeling and ambience. It’s not a big difference between the two areas and Railay Beach and their restaurants there as well. walking will take you around 5-10 minutes, but it’s still nice to be informed whats on either side of Railay Beach so you know where to go to get your dining on.
